Voted against a MAGA-fascist incumbent in NM 2 today.


T-minus 28 minutes till polls close here in the Land of Enchantment.

If you can, please watch the Lynn Novick, Sarah Botstein, and Ken Burns: USA and the Holocaust

This is an amazing account of how U.S. antisemitism contributed to the horrors of the 30s and 40s. The analog between American fascists then, and American fascists now is chilling, and, frankly, a clarion call.


Join the Movement to Unplug Fox "News"

I'm sure many here have already joined this movement, and likely (hopefully) this has been posted here before, but it is something that can't be reiterated often enough:


Posted without comment. Nobel Laureate Mr. Bob Dylan: He tried to warn us ...

Rights to abortion, contraception, marriage, relationships, and privacy ARE in the US Constitution!!

Amendment IX:
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people

In 1791, women had a right to terminate a pregnancy up until quickening, and that was a legal doctrine that went back centuries under British Common Law.

Sorry this needs to be said still in 2022 -- Nazi punks: FUCK OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TFG reminds me of Napoleon.

No, not the diminutive fellow from Corsica.

I mean the PIG from Orwell's Animal Farm. (I'm re-reading the book for the first time since high school)

To be clear, the PIG would be less corpulent and have a higher IQ, but their methods are quite similar.

Been rereading 1984; Orwell described the MAGA cult to a T, read this:

Describing Parsons (who is later turned in for thoughtcrime by his own daughter):
"He was a fattish but active man of paralysing stupidity, a mass of imbecile enthusiasms -- one of those completely unquestioning, devoted drudges on whom, more even than on the Thought Police, the stability of the Party depended."

Is that not the classic description of a Trumpinista?

Later, during Winston's torture, the evil party apparachik OBrien tells us how the party views are so close to the MAGA cultists:
"There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science."

Not proud ... I finally lost it with my maga neighbor today ...

Dude is the kind of guy who blasts his music at 8 a.m. on a Saturday.

He put up a dotard 2020 flag AFTER January 06, and sometimes displays two. And he takes it down at night and puts it back up every day

Needless to say, since the numbnut lives right across the street from me, I have to see this shit in my neighborhood every day, and I guess today I had kind of reached my limit; as I was returning from my morning run, I saw dude, flags a flappin', out in his yard, and while I was still a few houses away I went into a real loud "fake" laugh and yelling, "Trump what a f-ing loser, hahahaha, what a piece of s---," etc. I can be super loud when I want to and have a patented "laugh" my kids could tell you about. And when I was directly across the street from his house, I dropped to my knees and started slapping the pavement in mirthful enjoyment of how stupid someone would have to be to fly that hideous banner.

Meanwhile, Trumper started filming with his phone.

So I told him he was flying the flag of a cop killer. And I chanted "cop killer" at him through gusts of laughter and derision. Then, since he used to fly an SD/LA Chargers flag, I told him he should put it back up because even the chargers aren't as big losers as the dotard.

Then I went home, with a wicked smirk on my face. One of my other neighbors asked me if I had gotten it all out. That remains to be seen.

I'm not proud of the incident; let's face it, I kind of snapped, but only after months (years) of this kind of shit. Nevertheless, I do feel well within my rights to have voiced my opinion in my own way. If he is going to broadcast racism and hatred in my neighborhood, he needs to expect some pushback, no?

Also, for the record, I NEVER threatened him or even got close to him; I stayed on my side of the street. If he had reported me to the cops, the most he would have been able to say is that I laughed at his flag, and used some potty language.
